Election Fraud? Double Voting in Celer’s State Guardian Network

Jump Crypto has discovered a vulnerability in Celer's State Guardian Network, which could have allowed a malicious validator to compromise the network and applications dependent on it. The issue was privately reported to the Celer team and has since been fixed. The vulnerability involved fraudulent voting, where a malicious validator could vote multiple times on the same update, effectively multiplying their voting power and potentially tipping the vote in favor of an invalid or malicious update. This would allow them to spoof arbitrary onchain events such as bridge transfers, message emissions, or staking and delegation on Celer’s main SGN contract. While there are defense-in-depth protections in place that make a complete theft of all funds locked in its bridge unlikely, an attacker could exfiltrate tokens with a value of around $30 million before contracts are halted.

Developers Block Potential ‘Eight Figure’ Exploit Involving Cosmos-Based Ethermint

A vulnerability affecting the Cosmos ecosystem and Ethermint was recently discovered by Jump Crypto and blocked before it could cause significant damage. Ethermint, which enables the use of Ethereum smart contracts within the Cosmo ecosystem, was the affected network. The bug could have allowed an attacker to bypass specific smart contract functions and steal transaction fees, leading to denial of service to users. The Evmos Core Development team and the Cronos team collaborated with Jump Crypto to address the issue, including a patch to block transactions with certain messages to eliminate the attack vector. No malicious exploitation occurred, and the Cronos team awarded Jump Crypto a $25,000 bounty for their discovery. The root cause of the vulnerability was improper handling of transactional messages in Ethermint's implementation, specifically the interaction between two message types. The attacker exploited the vulnerability by embedding one message type inside another, bypassing a security feature responsible for deducting gas fees from transactions.
